After you’ve logged in and you’ve landed on the dashboard page. You’ll want to move your eyes to the higher right portion of the page where you see “Bill payment”.

Don’t be misled like I was!

By the Bills & Statement option in the lower middle portion of the page. It’ll take you to a different section and its for you to do more stuff with your bills. Which I wouldn’t bother because all I want to do is pay my TM UniFi bill.

Hey, Telekom Malaysia Berhad – Telephone & Multimedia must be right… NOT!

The correct step was to select Utilities from the list of all payees! #facepalm x 1000

DIY Unifi cable gutter

The few things I did before installing Unifi was visit my cousin who had it already and had a look at the wiring. I know that the technicians will pull a Unifi cable from the telephone post behind your house. But I wanted to make sure what else they may have to do.

TM Unifi box

As far as I know, landed properties with telephone poles behind or in front of the house should have this if Unifi is in your area. For high rise buildings, friend of a friend shared it’s cables running through the electrical cabinet or something like that. For commercial or business areas, there’s a flatter box (in that colour) stuck on your wall – most likely near your mailboxes.

My cousin said their TM Unifi involved some drilling because technicians had to pull the cable into the house to where your STB (set top box) for the HyppTV is placed. I chose not to configure this yet during my installation because:

  1. We already have Astro.
  2. I rarely watch TV and Astro.
  3. I’ve no interest in the programs HyppTV offers.

Anyway, technicians still had to pull the Unifi cable to the 2nd floor of where our router was placed. The cable ran through the window and no hole was drilled. Apparently, they didn’t have the tools to do it either. *shrug*

Now, here’s the part where I made a cable gutter at the window. Simply because I was worried if the fibre optic cable bent too much, it’ll damage the cable later. God knows what’s the cost of doing the rewiring work again.


So I’ve made a small gutter. The cable won’t be damaged in the long run after being grazed by the window now. Tools used were a small hacksaw, chisel and hammer. After which I took some wiring tape to stick the wire down.

Sorry to say that if your window is the casement type.

This one

You may need to put a hole in your wall for the wire to run through.

Or, if you’re a Unifi customer or installer with these windows, please do share how you worked around this. 🙂

Andale, andale! Arriba, arriba!

Yeehaw! Well, I suppose there’s some truth to that now that I’m on 10mbps…bitches! *throw retarded gang sign with fingers all twisted up that it hurts* 😛

Streamyx did not serve me excellence but it did serve me well. That’s after I got a really nice technician come over and help me bump up the line. So thank God for him and may he and his family be blessed. Lol.


In the end, me and my sister-in-law decided it was probably strategic to upgrade the Internet line. Counting more than 10 devices connected to the Internet with more than 4 always connected and at least 2 downloading heavily, I only hit a wall deciding whether 5mbps was enough. So, I thought 10mbps made most sense..

Anyway, enough jibber-jabber. Let me show you how’s the performance based on the time and server locations.

8.50am - Kuala Lumpur
8.52am - Singapore
8.55am - Dallas, Texas

During this hour in the morning, I’m assuming the speeds may have been inaccurate because some people at home may have been downloading. But I’m not surprised with the international connection performance. To say the least, it’s better than using my so-called 1mbps connection.

5.03pm - Kuala Lumpur

This speed test was done while no one was using the connection and I believe it’s more efficient since most people around my area would be at their workplace than home.

Other known factors which affect the Unifi performance, similar to Streamyx, is the number of users in your area or how much bandwidth is being taken up.

The verdict

Is Unifi good? It’s alright.

So why upgrade? Because it’s just faster.

Is it noticeable? Kind of.

Then why not get the 20mbps? No budget.

So…can I leech your connection? Let me ask my imaginary friend first.

P.S.: LowYat forumer was helpful enough to get me signed up and he delivered his promise; installation within 7 days. Plus, installation team (2 young dudes) came on a public holiday and arrived 30 minutes earlier than the appointed time. Lovely.
